How do you like to correct your vision...or which for your significant others?

I'm sick of wearing glasses.  Had them since 3rd grade.

But I don't know how contacts would work, exactly.  Do you "feel" them throughout the day?  What really can happen if you accidentally forget to take them out before you go to sleep?  How easy are they to lose?

I couldn't use contacts because I"m terrible about putting them in my eye, but once in, I love them.  I don't feel them.

I prefer eyeglasses. I never used contacts. I was always afraid I would poke out an eye trying to put them in.

Can anybody speak to how well lasik surgery works?  I'm curious, but for years, I haven't remotely had the health coverage to semi-afford it.

My fumble-fingered tendencies are a major issue in my hesitance to go the contacts route.  We'll see.  I'd like to look into some options besides glasses this year.
